    I use to worry about gas. Now with my Prime I just worry about gas after having burritos.

    Yeah, but you are not paying over $4.50 per gallon to give your Prime a drink.

    Averaging about $2.40/gallon here in the Tampa area. It's gone up about 40-50 cents in the past few months. Still, dirt cheap compared to most of the world.

    Lordy, lordy, lordy! You folks should hang where my dad lived, Provence region of France. They only pay about $8.00/gal. Prices like that here, and people might get a reality check on the true cost of gasoline, including carbon dioxide and other pollutants. There would probably be a revolution of course.... Now if we could generate all of our electricity from renewables, that would be something. You'd think someone in the oil industry might be forward-thinking enough to make SERIOUS investments in renewables as a way to maintain and grow their company. But that's probably too much to ask.

    It would cost them money now & would not be profitable before they were ousted from their position.

    About 6 or 7 years ago..when a barrel of oil pried at $100..equals $1/liter in Canada. Now $1.21/L while a barrel prices at $56.

    lol. It crested over $1.40 last weekend on the west coast. Still <$1/litre in parts of Alberta

    Don't forget the exchange rate isn't 1:1. If it was, the gas prices will be lower than they are now. (probably just a touch below <$1/litre in Toronto)

    strange. when oil was $100. here, gas was high, and has come back down. someone is profiting there. which is inverse of typical u.s./canada pricing.
